Indie-rockers The 1975 are locked in to play a Sydney sideshow to coincide with their appearance at 2014’s Big Day Out.

The songs on The 1975’s self-titled debut album are gigantic pop-rock things made of teenage sing-along choruses and ’80s drums. “Every song is like the credits song from a different John Hughes movie, that’s kind of the vibe. Like, I’m a bit mental so I could probably tell you 30 different vibes that I want the album to be, but that John Hughes/Cameron Crowe element is what it needs to be,” frontman Matthew Healy told BRAG earlier this year.

The 1975 play Oxford Art Factory on Monday January 27.
